as soon as i finished those slippers for james’ mom of course i had to start clapotis. i was so excited that i started it on the car ride from alameda to sf to james’ graduation with his parents. usually i can’t knit in the car (because i’m driving) but i took advantage of the break. and the 3 hour long ceremony.
i did one less increase repeat than the pattern called for. i think it will be a good width. and i was also slightly concerned about not having quite enough yarn, because my skeins (misti cotton) have slightly less yardage than the lion and lamb that the pattern calls for.
dropping the stitches is fun; even james gets excited when it’s time for that. i’ve almost completed 5 of the 13 straight row repeats.
if i had to set a goal for myself, it would be to finish before my trip to montana in july. at the rate i’m going, that is easily achievable.
it is also my goal to work on this, and ONLY this (with the exception of amy’s other slipper, especially since she found buttons) until it is done! we’ll see if it can keep my attention.
